This special wood primer is designed to be used under white and light solid colored stains to inhibit extractive bleeding and provide a long-lasting finish. This neutralizes and helps eliminate the natural tannin or sugar staining and discoloration produced by bare woods such as red cedar, redwood, fir, pine, or white cedar, and seals the wood for uniformity of the finish. This primer has excellent adhesion to wood surfaces and is highly resistant to peeling. The unique breathable formulation also helps to diminish the surface rusting of uncoated nails.


Ideal for shakes, shingles, clapboards, siding, trim, and hardboards. Top coat with Storm Category 4 100% Acrylic Stain or Storm Category 4 Acrylic Stain W/ Enduradeck on horizontal or deck applications.
